Development of a Trails Plan

Scotts Bluff National Monument » Development of a Trails Plan » Document List

The National Park Service (NPS) at Scotts Bluff National Monument is proposing a trails development plan for the entire park. The proposed project is intended to address issues such as offering community members and visitors a more cohesive way of interacting with geologic, cultural, and natural resources through the development of recreational trails.

The proposed trails development plan is needed to enhance educational, interpretive and recreation opportunities about the geological, natural, and cultural resources to trail users, to protect and preserve historic properties and ensure Scotts Bluff's significance as a National Monument. In addition, the plan seeks to manage visitor use so that impacts on natural resources are minimized, to create established travel routes to minimize impacts to park resources and to enhance public safety for park trail users.
